After last night's loss he said he is contemplating retirement. Hopefully this will change Anderson Silva's tune about retiring. Rumor has it he wanted to retire to fight Roy Jones Jr. With him out of the picture maybe we will see the Spider around for a little longer than we thought.

No tune change, they're going to both retire so they can have their little boxing match

yea he has in a couple on occasions, i remember one were he was a guest commentator (i think) were he said a UFC champion wanted to fight him (obviously A.Silva) and that he thought it would bring huge money, but he said Dana white did want to let him do it. He said something along the lines "Dana has to stop being a little girl, and let the fight happen" lol.
